How can a Master of Human Resources and Employment Law degree help you?
The Master of Human Resources and Employment Law (MHREL) degree develops graduates who identify and analyze legal issues in order to solve critical human resources problems facing organizations. Human resources and employment management has historically emerged from a business administration curriculum. However, a significant aspect of any human resources job involves employment law, and organizations have come to recognize the importance of legally-trained professionals that can navigate the local, state, and federal laws that regulate labor markets. This degree focuses on the legal aspects of human resource management and employment. Students who graduate will demonstrate an understanding of U.S. law, legal structures, and legal reasoning when making informed decisions regarding complex human resource problems.
